Habari is a blogging platform announced in January 2007, whose aim is to represent a fresh start to the idea of blogging.

Habari relies on PHP5 with PHP Data Objects (PDO), and your choice of SQL database (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite). Habari is strongly object oriented, and implements the full suite of the Atom Publishing Protocol. User-created plugins make Habari do nearly anything imaginable, and a robust theme system permits the use of several popular templating solutions.

Some of the developers of Habari were developers of WordPress, currently the most popular blogging platform. An interesting read is the Interview with Habari Developers published in the Blog Kazani web site in August 2007.

Habari is named after a Swahili word meaning “news”, and is released under the open source Apache License 2.0.
